The SPCA Serving Erie County will be caring for 21 dogs from an animal shelter in a hurricane-ravaged area of Florida, the agency said Monday.
The dogs were scheduled to be among 180 arriving Monday afternoon at Prior Aviation in Cheektowaga on a Wings of Rescue flight. The dogs, who were previously available for adoption at a shelter in Lakeland, Fla., before Hurricane Irma hit, will be cared for at animal shelters in New York and Pennsylvania until they can be reunited with evacuated families, the SPCA said.
Some of the dogs coming to Erie County will be available for adoption sometime later this week, the SPCA said. No information on the ages or breeds of dogs was available Monday.
